Paddy’s Banana Bread

I know it’s early in the season to be thinking about baking, but this morning I found that we had let our bananas blacken…so here we go

1/2 cup Shortening

1 cups Sugar
2 Eggs; beaten
3 Bananas; ripe
1 tsp Baking soda
2 cups Flour
pinch Salt
4 tsp Sour milk (add a smidge of vinegar to milk to make sour milk)

Dash of Captain Morgan’s dark rum (any dark rum will do, but Captain Morgan is a family ancestor)


Cream shortening; add sugar and beat well.


Beat eggs and mash bananas and add them to the above.


Sift flour, salt and baking soda, add alternately with sour milk and beat until smooth.  Add dash rum.


Bake in a greased pan at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until it’s done. Cool well before slicing.
